The Junagadh Gate is one of the most important historical monuments in Somnath. Through this very gate, it is believed that the invader, Mahmud of Ghazni, marched into the town to ransack the Somnath Temple. The Gate itself wasn’t spared and some parts were destroyed at the time of invasion. Today the triple Gate stands tall on the way to Somnath town through Veraval, much to the awe of all the devotees and tourists, who are blown away by its grandeur and splendid history. On closer inspection one can even see intricate carvings on the Gate dating back to ancient times.
